Page 6: The shy teenager is still in there on the back burner, she’s just comfortable enough to be herself with Lyndlee and Remi. Which is a great thing, or so her parents say, who always encouraged her to try to make friends and she somehow did. She even took the initiative this year to join six clubs; History, Archery, Camera, International, and Leo Club, with Byrd Buddies not far behind to help with widening her boundaries with the interaction of people. Page 7: Her trio has been a roller coaster in itself, but what Lyndlee and Remi have taught her is worth not having different friends. All three are a mismatched trio that she wouldn’t trade, and she’s forever grateful that they let her join their group last year.
Sometimes, they don’t need hotels when travelling because chances are, they know someone there. Gabrielle concluded her interview on talking about how much she enjoys having friends all over the world and getting to make new friends. “Making new friends is my top favorite thing about growing up in the military; even though I move shortly after I just move, I will always have the memories with me and it gives me something to look back upon. Memories are
“I am scheduled for four, eight hour shifts, so it depends on if I am on day turn of night turn. If I am on day shift I wake up at 5:15. When I work on evening shift I am able to do studying for my masters program and I will leave for work at 2 PM and get home around 1AM.” The things that she views most important in her job is her fellow employees. Caitlin describes the group of people she works with as very supportive and friendly, as well as her boss. “I also find it very important that I have flexible hours, so then I can attend family events and do my schoolwork” she shares.
I went home and explained the dilemma to my parents, and they both agreed it was up to me, but I needed to notify my coach and my girls athletics coordinator. The following day I approached my Girls Coordinator and presented my complication. His riposte was not what I expected. He told me that if I went to the
This week is another mixed feeling again. First of all, I am started to feel my summer vacation is coming this week. We have 2 more weeks left before our summer vacation start. Therefore, even though we have tons of reading to be done for the final next week, but I just can’t seems to pick up my pace on the study. I feel like this past year has passed by so fast, but at the same time, due to constant stress from the exams throughout the year, I can’t wait to start my summer break.
Laconia Middle School was the local school for those that lived in Laconia. Knowing most of my classmates and having many friends I felt as though I was at a very good place in life. Attending school everyday was fun for me. I got to be in classes with my best friends, had some of my favorite teachers, worked out a wonderful schedule and played the sports I loved, but if anything middle school was especially important to me was when I began to pick up a fascination for history and also began to realize how the Bosnian War had affected me as a person. Seventh grade was the year I was asked to write an essay about my biggest fear.
To be honest, I tell my friends everything, much more than I would tell my family, and they accept me and tell me everything that goes on with them in return. A special love and trust exists between friends that does not occur in families, as people have the opportunity to choose friends and build a relationship, but are forced to associate with the family that they are given at birth. For example, when I was younger, I had a crush on a guy, however, I knew he did not like me back. I could not tell my family, as they would just tease me, so I told my friends, and they helped me become friends with him. Instead of my friends telling him about the crush and embarrassing me and losing my trust, my friends kept it between us, and that strengthened our friendship.
Every summer, she would move back to her village, Shaktoolik (population, 300). Sheri once told me that she has so many cousins that if she was going to marry someone it would not be someone in her village because it could be a long distance cousin. I am thankful for all the friends I have met over the years. Meeting new people is always hard but I have learned over the years that sometime all it takes is for someone to say hello. The tension goes away and the friendship begins.
While challenging, for the most part, I conquered through each day and week with little episodes of headaches, insomnia and nausea. What really encouraged me and helped me to meet my weekly goals was talking to family and friends throughout the week and knowing that everything was going to work out in the end. And after each week, if no more than 4 episodes, I would get to go home and have a fun day out. Overall I was very successful at meeting my SMART goal on a weekly basis. I met my goal 4 weeks out of 12 weeks.
According to an article Molly Edmonds, (N,d) you are with people for everything in your whole life cycle. Friendship is something that will give you a good time or bad time.

Amber keeps me sane. She always know what to say to put me into a good mood. Another one of my closest friends is actually my boyfriend, Ian Hanthorn. Ian and I were friends for a year before we started dating. My favorite thing about him is his unwavering personality.
Because I am not from Alabama, I knew that this program was going to be an excellent way to get involved and meet people in a smaller setting before classes start – but I never expected the impact that the people I met this week would have had on me. Whether it was the amazing student leaders or the freshman in my project group at Taylorville, I met some of the most genuine people in my life and they really helped to solidify my view of this school and made me feel like I belong here, like I’m home. It wasn’t just the fact that we spent a majority of this past week together that made us connect, but it was our drive to
It has taken months to prepare. However, I can say that this has been one of the best years of my life. We debated about everything but what came out of those debates is a program that is designed with you in mind. It gives you time to be you. It gives you time to enjoy the little things and make those friends.
My flight finally had a day off coming up; something they had been looking forward to. A day before our break, the operations section told me they needed my flight members to participate in a particular volunteer opportunity. The reason they needed us, was because the people that made the volunteer commitment weeks before, backed out. Valuing the opinions and views of my flight members, I used intellectual stimulation to empower my flight sergeant to help me come up with a plan that would meet the intent of the operations section, while not impeding on, my flight’s upcoming break. Instead of negatively affecting my entire flight, I used my critical thinking skills of being a free thinker, and not conforming to what I should have done.
My father has recently become unemployed, and my mother is still recovering from surgery as I write this essay and is also unable to work. I know my parents support my decision to study abroad, but they must prioritize the day-to-day needs of my siblings and their medical bills, and as such they cannot possibly afford to aid me financially. Unfortunately, I have continued to put off participation in international education because of financial hardship. I distinctly remember during the fall of my freshman year of college not being able to afford a one-week international exchange program. I felt devastated as I wrote an email to the program director saying that I wanted nothing more than to participate but I did not have the monetary means to finance my voyage.
